Monday, February 16 - ABC Night Another sunrise, another hangover. WTF? Two days in a row no less, and to make matters worse, today was the day I would wake up with no voice. Damn moldy broken A/C blowing directly on me all night. Normally I don't lose my voice till about the 5th day, so this was very premature. The day started like any other, until Jess had the brilliant idea to sign Ryan up for the Ironman competition. Now, he's won it before, so he really had nothing to gain, other than provide great laughs and entertainment for the shitshow crew. And that he did. He easily won the contest, aided by the fact that the two guys competing against him were absolutely hammered. It's always the really drunk people who enter these contests, and this time was no different. When offered a 20 second time handicap if he would remove his bottoms, Ryan simply said "Don't need it". And he didn't. What was absolutely hilarious, and I REALLY wish we had pictures, was at the end of the contest all three guys had to simulate doing oral on a girl. Two of the guys got whip cream covered plates, but Ryan was surprised with a long loaf of bread and two dinner rolls on either side of it. The end of the loaf of bread was dipped in something dark, maybe it was chocolate, but I prefer to think it was Truffle Butter. Ryan proceeds to fellate, with outstanding deep throat skills, this loaf of bread which most certainly was 5x larger than any penis I've ever seen. I don't know how he even got his mouth open that wide, but it was impressive! Shortly after, Kevin and Ailsha arrived and things started to get turned up pretty quickly. Gummi bears, AIWC, and other shenanigans ensued. Later in the afternoon, the women from the Lee/Ramsey duo showed up and proceeded to get completely annihilated in short order. Can you say "first day curse"? Sadly, they did not make it out for ABC night. Anyway, it was a great afternoon with good weather and fun people. Doesn't get much better than that. Mrs. ATM took her nap, followed by the buffet, and then back to get ready for ABC night. Her outfit was "Caution" tape on top and a thong on the bottom. Mine was a Crown Royal sack. I know, not original, but I'd never tried it and wanted to push the limits a bit. We got dressed up and headed down to Paty-O's around 9:30. The music was thumping so we thought it was about time to show up in our ABC costumes. Boy, were we wrong. None of the shitshow crew was there yet and we felt entirely out of place. Everyone was wearing normal clothes. We started pounding fireball to try to get more comfortable, and fortunately ran into a couple other CCC folks to hang out with for a bit until more of the Shitshow crew arrived. We went through a LOT of fireball this night. I even had a staff member ask if he could have some. He drank it right from the bottle. I was kinda surprised he asked, so I told him he could have some as long as I could take a picture The best costumes, hands down, perhaps in the history of the Shitshow, go to Kevin/Ailsha. He was dressed in Fireball apparel only... a Fireball flag worn as a cape, with fireball boxes made into gladiator type armor, and a gladiator helmet. Pure bad-ass. Ailsha spent considerable time having body paint, electrical tape, and diamond studs placed on her by a professional that, I believe, Steve coordinated for her. It was unbelievably cool and very hot! Everybody had their own creative spin on ABC and for me, this was one of the most fun nights. Great outfits and great fun. I'll take this brief second to mention that I thought the Paty-O DJ was much better this trip than on any of our previous trips, which is encouraging. There were no crowd-killing songs played that I recall, all night. When the DJ stopped, DJ-ATM started and I'm pretty sure we were up well past 4am this particular night, between sports pool dips, more dancing, and the inevitable Paty-O burger.
